Excerpt from A Series of Temperance Sermons: Delivered in the City Hall, Lowell, by the Several Clergymen of the City
AT the request of the Executive Committee of the Lowell Temperance Union, the several clergymen of the city, during the present season, delivered a series of lectures, on successive Sabbath evenings, upon subjects connected with the Temperance reform. With how great fidelity they discharged this important duty, the reader will be enabled to judge. That these sermons, under God, have been the means of efi'ecting great good, none, who have had the opportunity of observing the results, will deny. The beneficial inﬂuences, following them, have not been confined to the great numbers even, to whom they were immediately addressed. They gave an impetus to the Temperance cause that is still onward, and. Will cpntinue onward, it is hoped, till the use of intoxicating drinks ceases from among us. Impressed with a belief that these Sermons may exert a still more widely extended inﬂuence, not only in this city but abroad, if given to the public through the press, the Executive Committee have obtained the consent of their authors to their publication. They will all be found in the present volume, with the exception of that of the Rev. Mr. Mclmo'r'r of the Catholic Church, a copy of which the publishers regret could not be had.
